Minox vs Vortex viper pst

Helping my nephew"college student" put together a project he has a 6.5 X 300 Weatherby hunting weight rifle. Will be hunting Pronghorn, Whitetail and spring bear. We are trying to decide between The Minox 5-20x50 with BDC or the Vortex Viper PST 1 MOA reticle in a 4-16 or 6-24 version. I use the term we being that I'm the one paying for majoity of project. I have been using a nightforce 5.5-22 on my personal guns, I know the quality optics with Minox and Votex will be less because they are half the price. Any input will be appreciated thanks for your time.

Re: Minox vs Vortex viper pst

If he'll be cranking the turrets I'd feel safer with the PST as I know they track consistently and reliably. I hear the Minox has good glass but I don't know of anybody who has cranked the turrets enough to prove them reliable for that type of use.
